Perfect product and good service.Review by Eric
Lights look very nice and modern; work and dim well; and are easy to install in regular junction boxes (j-boxes). (Posted on 1/10/2016)
Great lightsReview by Frank
I recently built a 30x30 shop with 10 ft ceilings. Used 30 of the 4000k lights - great light. No dimmer but the lights are on three circuits. Also use the same lights in the porch - 55' run and use 5 lights - plenty of light. Easy installation and cost in new costruction compares favorably to canned lighting..These must be very popular because each time I ordered they ended up back ordered - plan on placing your order 60-90 days in advance for a large order. You won't regret your purchase.

The stock out problem is not longer an issue. These now ship same or next business day. Polar Ray (Posted on 12/23/2013)
Great productReview by Rick Lambert
We put 3 of these in our remodeled bathroom to replace old hanging lights from the 70's. Bought 3 round retrofit ceiling boxes, 4 1/8 in. hole saw and 15 feet of wire. It took about 30 minutes to install all three lights. We are very pleased with the lights and plan to buy more for the next project. (Posted on 8/1/2013)
Awesome LightReview by Jim
We were looking for something that would light up the living room. The canned lights we had were basically just projecting light straight down. This product took the light out of the can and spread it throughout the room. What a difference it made. We also added one of the recommended dimmers with none of the problems other reviewers have mentioned. We are very pleased. (Posted on 7/30/2013)
4K glimpse down lightsReview by Errol Barrois
Replaced 8 4ft cfl tubes with 6 Glimpse 4K down lights. Looks great! Added dimmer just in case. Quality product! (Posted on 7/19/2013)
Don't use with a dimmerReview by Robert Wilber
These are very bright lights so be careful not to use more than you really need. You might think you could just add a dimmer if they're too bright. But while they do dim with an LED compatible dimmer, when dimmed they make an obnoxious 60 cycle hum. Think of the noisiest fluorescent bulb you've heard with a bad ballast -- that's what you get.

very nice quality LED retrofit lightReview by Debra
I purchased these lights as an upgrade for a kitchen remodel. They are very easy to install and are attractive; I was able to put in all 8 with no trouble despite no experience in this area. The lights are very bright so I purchased two dimmer switches at Lowe's so we have an option for early mornings :- ), I chose the Neutral White because I have been using daylight CFLs and dislike the yellowish cast of incandescent bulbs or non-daylight CFLs.

These are amazingReview by Terry Forrest
These LED replacement lights are amazing. The light output is so much better than the fluorescent ones they replaced! I chose the 4000 K version to free my home from the tyranny of yellow. I'm so happy I did. At first it was very noticeable, but after a week or two, I'm used to seeing true color in my house. LED lighting can only get better, and, hopefully, cheaper.

Outstanding productReview by John
I purchased three LED lights. One 6" and four 4" Glimpse, as well as one Sylvania Gimbal light. This review is for all of these. They Glimpses were all much brighter than the stated incandescent equivalent, requiring a dimmer. It would have been much more helpful if Polar Ray sold the dimmer. Having to find one, as it recommended, was not easy to do, because the various dimmer model numbers had changed, thus the four star rating. (Posted on 3/21/2013)
glimpse ledReview by JIm
Great product! Amazingly bright. Instant on, incredibly compact to fit into a J box. Perfect for remodels. super easy upgrade for old can lights. (Posted on 3/7/2013)
Good product be careful with 5" adjustmentReview by John
Excellent product although the installation instructions were difficult to figure out. Be careful removing the trim ring if you have to adjust for 5" cans - a putty knife works well. The illustration is awful, but if you understand it is the 1/2" or so ring that pops out, you won't have any problem. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
2780 Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Thomas Combs
I ordered 4 lights and installed them. They are great!!!! Very bright and very easy to install. I'm in the process of ordering more for a kitchen remodel. I would recommend for new or old work projects. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Gary Stephens
Purchase two of these for my wife's kitchen. Complain about corners of kitchen being dark. These took care of that problem. Will be ordering more to go in my living room and hall way. They are very bright, and no trouble to install. They come with very good instructions on how to install. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great ApplicationReview by John McCollum
I bought 4 of these to light my galley kitchen. I changed out a four tube 4ft flourescent light do to up grading my kitchen. These LED light are perfect. I would suggest anybody buying these lights get the most powerful and put them on a dimmer for your choice on how bright you want the area to be. They were easy to install. Recommend to anybody who wants to save money (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Next-gen LightingReview by Rodney
The install was confusing at first because my previous lighting was utilizing a different portion of the can to hang the outer rim. After about 15 minutes I eventually figured out where to place the hooks.

With that said, this was perhaps the easiest, and best lighting upgrade I have seen and anyone can do it. After comparing all the in-can LED lighting upgrades on the market, the Glimpse LED downlight was the most affordable, easiest to install, and had on-par quality lighting. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
LED LightReview by Robert Goeddey
Light was easy to install. Had to replace old dimmer with new one made for LEDs. Some flickering at medium intensity, adjusting dimmer eliminates flicker. Will not turn on at low intensity, have to increase intensity at dimmer, turn on and then lower intensity at dimmer. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
two thumb upReview by Danny
i bought this light bec. of low profile
and LED light.easy to install, neutral white light. i install with the compact light in series. when you turn on the light it has little bit delay . (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Derek Faughn
Great product. Easy to install. Good product support from the manufacturer - my existing lighting can wasn't on the compatibility list. While not on the list, the Glimpse product installed and works flawlessly. Only real recommendation is to start with a lower lumens rating first. These are very bright... (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Stephen Ames
interesting concept and quite different than those LED retrofits with the large rear housing, Indeed it does fit in a J-box but just barely. If you have a lot of junctioned wires in the box, if may not fit securely to the ceiling.

The charger unit is not secured well to the lamp and with little disturbance pulls away from its holder. Approximately one second delay upon light-up.

Nevertheless a good solution where a 5 or 6 inch can does not exist/is not feasible. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
FantasticReview by debbls
This retrofit light is so fantastic, easy to install (the video is fun to watch, too), and impressed even our electrician. Don't really need an electrician to install, though. It is SO bright, it puts other lights to shame, and I'm ordering 70 more right now! (Posted on 1/25/2013)
